For generations, the Lenore women have manufactured a perfume unlike any other. Hidden in the Blue Ridge Mountains, their perfumery guards a secret: the Lenores' signature elixir is a key to success.
Willow, the matriarch, runs the operation, assisted by her daughters Mya and Lucia. Like her foremothers, Mya can "read" scents and envision their power. Lucia lacks the magic touch, and leaves the family business.
But after a divorce, Lucia returns--and discovers trouble. Willow is experiencing spells of forgetfulness. Mya is romancing a younger man. A client is threatening blackmail. And the magical plants of the perfume's secret ingredient are dying.
With the business at stake, the sister who can save their scent stands to inherit. Though Mya schemes to take over, Lucia has begun to show signs of special abilities. Her return to the mountains--heralded by a swarm of dragonflies--may be the answer they all need.
Season of the Dragonflies is a beguiling tale of practical magic, old secrets, and new love.
